Which method of viewing music should I use?
Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.
Printing after purchase
After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Adapted from a keyboard setting in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book (produced early 17th century), this is a (quite brief) working of a traditional tune, which appears in some versions of the words to the Maypole tune 'Come Lasses and Lads' in verse 3.
It is suggested that this be programmed with other items from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book - Pakington's Pownde, Pavana Chromatica and The King's Hunt for example make a nice group.
The suggested tempi are mine, as are the dynamics.
N.B. The ornaments may look like subdivisions of notes, but the meanings are rather different! I have retained the ornamental signs from the original, as the meanings are not conveyed very accurately by other available ornament signs. A single stroke through a stem implies a run up of two notes to the note in question; a double stroke implies a mordent that may extend into a trill or something more decorative, dependent on context and the player's individual style. Omitting any ornament is also perfectly acceptable.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
